Game: DiRT 4

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Codemasters

Release Date: 2019 (MacOS and Linux)

It’s fair to say that a new DiRT sequel is long overdue. Dirt 3 was released back in 2011 to near universal acclaim, and fans have been pining for an official follow-up ever since (we’re not counting the subpar spin-off that was Dirt Showdown).

It seemed logical, then, to earmark this year for DiRT’s belated comeback. So imagine our surprise when Codemasters didn’t announce Dirt 4 like we all expected, but Grid Autosport, a surprise sequel to last year’s Grid 2 that rectified most of the community complaints of its predecessor.

And yet Codemasters has been teasing Dirt 4’s development for quite some time, with not-so-subtle Tweets hinting at its existance. Today marks yet another cheeky Dirt 4 tease, with a tweet on the official Dirt Twitter account that simply reads “4”, followed by another saying “oops sorry finger slipped.”

 

 

Which direction are you hoping Dirt 4 will take? Judging from Chief Game Designer Paul Coleman’s words in the past, we’re expecting a complete comeback of the white knuckle point-point-point rallying the series was renowned for in the Colin McRae days and less of the Ken Block gymkhana silliness – leave all that to Dirt Showdown as a separate spin-off series. Bringing back rally would be particularly ideal considering that Milestone have yet to announce a sequel to WRC 4 this year, too.
